Supported Streams for Player V4
Was this article helpful?
Player V4 is a modular player consisting of plugins, which means that you can add or remove certain player functionality depending on which plugins you load on your HTML page. Some plugins are required for your player to function and other plugins are optional, depending on what functionality you want your player to have. For details on the default location of these plugins, see Ooyala-hosted Player V4 Resources.
Video plugins create video elements and video wrappers, and decode video encodings. They provide the Ooyala Player information about the encoding and encryption types they support, and the player uses that information, along with a priority order for encodings, to select which plugin to use when playing a stream. You can load any number of video plugins on your page.
At least one video plugin is required for Player V4.
